Sooo my show season this year got pooched...so I'm already thinking about next show season. If all goes as planned I'll be making my FEI debut, so, I'm in the market for a shadbelly (yay!). Since show season doesn't start until May next year I obviously need to start shopping the August before, right??
Anyways, I figure if I'm going to be spending the money I might as well get a good coat. I have a Pikeur short coat but I had to alter it to fit my monkey arms - at almost 6' tall everything is loooong on me. I'm worried I'm going to have a problem with finding sleeves and tails long enough. Because of this I'm considering custom/semi-custom and I might as well buy one that'll last a lifetime (I'll have a second horse going PSG in a couple years as well as the one I'm planning on for next year - so it'll get used).
The point of this is - does anyone have suggestions as to a company/brand to check out? I won't go custom if I don't have to but I want something that will fit as perfectly as possible.
